in this very small part of our city and project jobs at 40,725 and while these are really great numbers, i believe in growth and density, we have to make sure that our neighborhoods have the faith that we are going to be able to provide the infrastructure that is needed to support this development and growth. otherwise, the question is should we continue to grow, if we are not able to provide that level of infrastructure and on the second issue that several of the residents brought up, including dph, thinking about our air quality, and i would be really interested in talking about avalos and mar, and their part of the bay area air quality and management district, and i would like to learn little bit more about that. i definitely hear that loud and clear, i know in my own house you know that just the windows that i open have a thick layer of black dust and the windows that i never open i never have to clean the sills and it is clearly from the congestion in the neighborhood and i know that that is real and i am glad that was brought up and i was struck in the budget and legislative analyst

by the annenberg/cpb project this is siena, a wonderfully preserved medieval city in central italy. at its heyday around 1300, it was one of the most civilized and prosperous places in europe. siena and other italian city-states can stand as a new beginning in our story of western art. hitherto, the old medieval world view had, put simply, divided the classes of society into the aristocracy at the top, the church, and the laboring peasantry at the bottom. in places like this, we see for the first time a new class, conscious of its own identity-- the merchants. these cities were no longer controlled by feudal lords. they were republics. here in siena, several thousand citizens were eligible for election to the governing bodies which met down there in the palazzo publica. and in the palazzo, there is a fresco painted in the 1340s which encapsulates their faith in the secular arts of government, in the moderating power of reason in human society. it's called the effects of good government. this marvous fresco, painted by ambrogio lorenzetti, was the first panoramic landscape on this scale in western
and the food resources. and and the city wide analysis. >> and for the district level. and for the analysis for the population of the groups of children and families. and the disabilities and. and you will see the data from the two districts is 66 and it is not surprising that district six gets the highest rates of food insecurity and it is a hub for services. and service provided are located. and you even have the neighborhood focus, and well as the coalition and i think that you can see from this, this is the highest number of for the homeless and one of the highest number of the housing units without kitchens. and this shows you the food program that are available and it has the highest concentration of food resource and even with all of these resources, we will know that there are gaps that the food is increases and i am going to go to another district which you might not think of as being viewed as having a high number of food insecure residents and it is district one and it is the richmond district. we have only pull odd data from just seniors, because there is a high number of senior

francisco are extraordinary ly lucky to have a rich a array of healthcare in this city for example i might live next door to a dr.'s office but i might not be able to seek care there. next we know that the demand on healthcare resources are going to be pushed to the brink actually but in san francisco we're probably better prepared than many other municipalities because of the healthy san francisco program and other programs that have existed in the city for a long time. there are certain populations that have higher rates of health disparities in our city so hoping it will guide the right kind of health facilities to those that need them and we have a diverse population here and providers who have been providing care to our -- in terms of land use projects of a medical nature it looks like san francisco is on track to meet resident's evolving health needs. now i'll turn the presentation over to claudia florez planning department. >> i'm going to cover the recommendations components of the plan in which came out of the data analysis for which lori gave you the highlights. the reco
approval and this plan is required to be updated every 3 years to be sure it's consist with the city's healthcare needs and that concludes our presentation. we're here and available for questions. >> thank you colleagues and as you can see from this report there's a lot of data and information here and you can see that there's information not only citywide but also neighborhood by neighborhood so why don't we turn it over to some questions supervisor mar. >> i wanted to thank all of you for the great presentation and the 3 years of work and the tremendous community engagement of supervisor campos and hillary a pretty amazing amount of effort targeted at great policy making that's equitable and in the best interest of the whole city and i want to say in looking at some of the maps not only the impacted neighborhoods that supervisor campos and others like the mission, be rna l and neighborhoods at least 2 hospitals with close access to kaiser as well but there's tremendous concern this process creates an equitable process or will help us but i want to ask about the incentive based sys
this is a long standing issue of overnight vehicles parking in the city and we also previously stated the impact that were caused by them throughout the city in our original policy and proposal report. we have a number of tools to manage parking in the city and we use them judiciously and appropriatelly but none of these tools was adequate in effectively addressing the over sized vehicle parking in the neighborhoods. the board of supervisors sometime asked us to take a look at the issues to see if there is any new options that we haven't considered to bring forward for consideration. based on the surveys we have done and also analysis with the conversations with the various stake holders, we came back with a simple parking restriction tool. that is to prohibit the parking of over sized vehicles longer than 22 feet or taller than 7 feet from parking between midnight and 6:00 a.m.. this includes trailers and other extensions of vehicles that you see out in the street. the board of supervisors adopted this tool as section 7.2.54 of the transportation code last fall. the board of directors of the mt
of the city and explore the large scale development whether it is lot, 337 and the giant's parking lot, pier 7, or pier 3032 and that we are able to show our commitment to the neighborhoods today and can address the transportation needs and, if would like, or if we want support for future growth and development in this area. i want to introduce peter from the sfmta who is going to give a presentation on the assessment. and i also welcome, i know that we have ken rich from the mayor's office of economic and workforce development. and we also did invite the planning department as well. to sit in. and i know that commissioner, or vice chair, scott weiner also has other comments before we begin the presentation. >> thank you, chair avalos. >> and also at the time that our commissioner kim requested this very important hearing on taking a step back and looking at development patterns on the water front and in the south, east part of the city and trying to match it up and making sure that we are keeping pace i requested a specific assessment of the transit inpacts and the pire.s 3032 project to ma
? >> we are prepared to refile the application tomorrow and it will be for them to tell us how the city typically takes to process. and two months on top of that for an appeal. could i hear mr. sanchez what your time estimate is? >> generally, these matters can be dealt with fairly promptly and i mean that this is a simple referral from the department of public works i would want to add abundance of caution and take the materials and the history related to the case i would not want to approve it as soon as we got it, would i want to take a second look at the materials because it seems to be the condition of a approval was this the slline a condition of approval and we don't have any evidence at this point to show that the dsl is a condition of approval that was approved by any particular body. to me in my mind that is critical in making a decision on the subdivision, is this a condition of approval. was this approved in 1962 when they approved the subdivision and we don't have any evidence that shows that that is the case but i would like to take a look at the records to see if we don't

of supervisors would have to agree when you talk about the general offhand that's other city departments they pay for electricity and if the full increase is granted would that be significant. >> it's an opportunity yes. >> what are - >> i wouldn't tell but there are plans for improvements that have to be deferred. >> i'd be interested in knowing what that goes up to it's speculative you know, i could envision a scenario where there's increases in the general funds and that money went everywhere but for street lights. seems like there's been a pretty low prioritization >> yeah. the 389 is not the al all-time low while islam i've been involved it's higher than it has been. >> it's embarrassing supervisor kim. >> i have a couple of of questions i wasn't following the slides on slide lifting i want to clarify the yellow are the pg&e and what's the red. >> the yellow and red are the series loops and the red where the loops where pg&e had programmed in 2012. >> so when there's a breakdown in one part of the loop it's not going to impact the rest of the loop 92? >> when the loop is converte
